    Player Watch: Kieran Trippier

    Seems to me that he probably enabled the bet by telling someone he was off. His public denial: “I want to make it clear that while a professional footballer, I have at no stage placed any football related bets or received any financial benefit from others betting.” ... of course only make...

    Premier League officially postponed until 17th of June

    The only way out of this is a vaccine. So I fully expect the government to fully approve one in the next few months. They have to. It doesn't matter how effective it is as long as it doesn't kill too many. The government can then release the lock down on scientific grounds and any resurgence in...

    Premier League officially postponed until 17th of June

    The battle is for next season, not this one and given the championship and below rely so heavily on gate money, they are all fcked under the current system. It could be a blood bath. The prem is less reliant on gate money so could just about get away with the tv money/sponsorship alone and games...

    Premier League officially postponed until 17th of June

    I suspect she'd come out with loads of reasons why it was workable if WH were close to securing a top-4 position, rather than being in a relegation dog-fight.

    Play the games behind closed doors and don't tell us the results either. Less we know about it the better.

    Featured Which is fairer? Coronavirus implications

    For the average footballer's age range, then i think the death rate is 1 in 500 from this. 500 is a rough estimate of the number of premiership players... so 1 will possibly die. Something like 1 in 5 might be hospitalised and of them a number will be put in intensive care. This is a serious...

    Featured Which is fairer? Coronavirus implications

    The footy wasn't cancelled for crowd safety, but because the players were having to self isolate and games were being cancelled at short notice. It is a contact sport with lots of panting, cuddling, communal baths and gobbing at each other, so players are a very infectious group. If one player...

    No - I think all teams accept that nothing is won or lost until the very end of the season. However TV companies might want a big refund as most of the big audiences tune in for the final weeks of the competitions. Tricky as their money is already spent on wages.

    Can we roll back to before we bought ndombele? Oh and before Vertonghen shagged Eriksen's Mrs?

    Jose : Spurs are in trouble, and Champions League qualification will be difficult

    This must be the worst squad of players he has ever managed.

    Match Ratings Ratings vs RB Leipzig

    Very strange that Mourinho did not include Sanchez in his list of the disabled, but just said he was unable to play. I wonder if he is self isolating.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I'm a big fan of mourinho but he got that first half against Burnley very wrong. Putting aside the Skip Ndombele midfield disaster, every one of the 5 CB's were playing in the wrong position apart from Vertonghen, who can play LB or L wingback in an emergency. Tanganga is no wing back. We knew...

    Tanguy Ndombele - The £63m problem Daniel Levy needs Jose Mourinho to solve

    Yes, and it is better the manager calls out the player before the fans get frustrated with him themselves. Rose never forgave us for being critical about him in the early days when he would not track back.
